Yum upgrade FC16 -> FC17

After I follow the instruction:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/YumUpg...-.3E_Fedora_17

I have this:

[root@static ~]# yum --releasever=17 --disableplugin=presto distro-sync
........

Downloading Packages:
Running Transaction Check
ERROR You need to update rpm to handle:
rpmlib(X-CheckUnifiedSystemdir) is needed by filesystem-3-2.fc17.x86_64
rpmlib(X-CheckUnifiedSystemdir) is needed by setup-2.8.48-1.fc17.noarch
RPM needs to be updated
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
Your transaction was saved, rerun it with:
yum load-transaction /tmp/yum_save_tx.2012-07-04.07-05.QEmVSK.yumtx

I have try this on all servers. Same result everywhere.
Any idea?

Have you updated the rpm package?

Re: Yum upgrade FC16 -> FC17

Are you sure you have done this:
Code:
# rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__*
# rpm --rebuilddb
# yum --releasever=17 update rpm
# rm -f /var/lib/rpm/__*
# rpm --rebuilddb
# yum --releasever=17 --disableplugin=presto distro-sync
# fixfiles onboot
What does this say:
PHP Code:
rpm -q rpm

Re: Yum upgrade FC16 -> FC17

Okay that's good.
Then my next guess would be that the file system hasn't been prepared/converted, which the internet seems to agree on.

Have you followed the "dracut" steps prior to the ones I posted?
If so you might need to check the result of the conversion.
Easiest way I can think of is by:
PHP Code:
ls -
You should see multiple symlinks to /usr.

Re: Yum upgrade FC16 -> FC17

Solved!

The problem was that kernel parameters was missing. after reboot in /etc/grub.conf
I add this:
- remove “ro” (read only)
- append “rw” (read write) to let dracut mount your root filesystem writeable
- remove “rhgb” (Red Hat graphical boot) to disable the graphical bootsplash
- append “rd.info” to get a more verbose output from dracut
- append “rd.convertfs” to enable the /usr-move conversion script in dracut
- append “enforcing=0” to disable SELinux enforcement

and reboot, after this all upgrade process finish successfully.

I get:
rpm -q rpm
rpm-4.9.1.3-1.fc16.x86_64

I've tried preupgrade and grub.cfg has:
menuentry "Upgrade to Fedora 16 (Verne) (on /dev/mapper/vg_lighting-lv_root)" --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,msdos1)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set=root e3cfe6d1-6366-44ef-bb88-aa408345719f
linux /upgrade/vmlinuz preupgrade repo=hd::/var/cache/yum/preupgrade ks=hd:UUID=e3cfe6d1-6366-44ef-bb88-aa408345719f:/upgrade/ks.cfg
initrd /upgrade/initrd.img
and "/upgrade/vmlinuz" contains 3.3.4-5.fc17.x86_64

When I reboot, grub offers me 3 older fc16 versions and an Upgrade to 16.
Is it lying to me? or just waiting to really trash my system?
Suggestions?

Thanks
